Who's on first in right field?

The Fucking Yankees will try anything to win.

So, who is this ballplayer called "Unknown"? What's his first name? Charlie Unknown? Or is Unknown his first name, Unknown Smith?

I watched the Yankee/Indian game last night on the big screen at Cell Field as it was pouring rain. Those of us who remained in the ballpark until the game was finally called because of rain (not until 10:00 pm), were all rooting for Cleveland.

I saw Unknown play in college. He's really not that good. The Yankees paid way too much for him.

okjimm said... post strike one

no post strike two

ya got one more pitch till you're traded to the St Paul Saints.

.....for either

a) a divine democrat
b) a unknown
c) a blogger to be named later
d) a beer in beautiful downtown

fairlane said...

I heard Unknown is on the Juice.

TomCat said...

Dang, I bet Unknown must be one of those illegal aliens!! ;-)

I love the Yankees and MLB but I just can't focus until Memorial Day weekend. It's odd.

By the time we drive up to Toronto in July to see them play the Jays, I'll be insufferably jones-in over the team.

Who cares about the Yankees when you can watch the Mets self-destruct. They won 4-3 yesterday and are up 6-3 now.

Maybe Unknown is one of the many Ghosts that live in the outfield of Yankee Stadium.

Suzi Riot said...

Ummm... Go baseball! Yeah!

pissed off patricia said...

Kind of like a certain candidate for President who will try anything to win.

b said...

Down with the Yankees!

Dean Wormer said...

He's not unknown. He's just a player from Costa Rica and they're just too lazy to type out his full name.

Christopher said...

Meanwhile, speaking of a former New York Yankee, the media is reporting that pitching legend Roger Clemens had a decade-long relationship with country star Mindy McCready that began when she was a 15-year-old aspiring singer and he was the pitcher was a Boston Red Sox.

And I thought steroids were the biggest obstacle for him to get to Cooperstown?

susan said...

I'm with Suzi!

'Beisbol bin berry gud to me'.. but we gave it up when we got rid of cable and I just can't pay attention long enough when it's on the radio or streaming and I'm doing other things.

It's something you have to be born to.

Randal Graves said...

ME, you rooted for us? Perhaps your soul will not burn in the eternal lake of fire after all.

angie, but they've got the dough to do so. Bastards.

okjimm, what's the point of being sen to an independent league team if I can't hear Rickey Henderson talk about how great Rickey Henderson is and when Rickey Henderson steals a base it's like the gods themselves wished they could be Rickey Henderson.

fairlane, it wouldn't surprise me. Have you seen the size of his skull?

tomcat, call Tancredo! They're coming for his job!

christopher, Yankees fans. Well, everyone has a flaw. ;-) I'm kind of the same way though, but I really don't get into it until after basketball wraps up.

spartacus, look at it this way: they're getting their 'let's shoot ourselves in our feet' out now instead of waiting for September.

mauigirl, given the results of the last two games, I wish Unknown and the rest of the Yankees had gone drinking with the ghost of Ruth.

suzi, once more, with even less feeling!

POP, you're so coy. Tell us how you really feel. ;-)

b, oui!

dean, can't be as bad as that catcher for the Rangers, Saltolamacchia or whatever the hell is his name.

christopher, as funny as it sounds, you're right. I bet that gets held against him even more than the steroids, when it shouldn't.

susan, you're right, which is why I laugh when I see World Series games starting at 9. You want to cultivate the next generation of fans, start them earlier.

Unfortunately, it seems as if an "Unknown" is also batt.. the line-up as DH for the Tribe.

What's a matter, Pronk? Can't hit w/o the Juice?

No evidence but the circumstantial.


Randal Graves said...

Hell, what's he down to now, .210? I'm shocked he's managed to drive in 16 runs to this point.
